If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/30/14

Wednesday, which means mid-week. That’s a good thing. Although my Tuesday was good, so I’m not stressing the week so far. In case you are, though, here are a few recommendations to help ease the way into the second half of the week. (By the way… Welcome back, Kyle! Hope you had fun at SDCC!)

Jenny’s Choice #1

hotincleveland730smallTonight should be a fun episode of Hot in Cleveland. Last week was great, too. Victoria had a visit from the son she always forgets, played by Glee’s Chris Colfer. He showed up with his partner, only we learned while Victoria was out of the room that he wasn’t really gay. He’d only told Victoria that to make her love him more. He was back because he wanted her backing for something he and his business partner were involved in. Watching the two of them pretend to be gay (the partner was all for it when Victoria announced she was giving them both new sports cars for their wedding. LOL) was great. In the end, Victoria and Tony had a heartfelt talk about why he chose to live with his father instead of her. The other great story line was Joy and Mitch going to preemptive counseling, and the therapist told them that they weren’t compatible. In the end, they realized they had a lot in common and the therapist got his compatibility quiz from those “Which Disney character are you?” type quizzes. It was great.

On tonight’s episode, “The Animated Episode,” the women finally see Elka’s apartment, which before now has been a mystery to them…and they soon find out why. From there, they meet up with Steven Tyler (and some other special friends) and go on a psychedelic romp through pop culture hits, including scenes with homages to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, The Walking Dead, and Frankenstein. Plus, they see what life in Cleveland would have been like if LeBron James had never left.

Check out the first-ever animated episode on TV Land at 10/9c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/16/14

It’s Hump Day! That means not only are we looking at some great shows, but also it’s midway through the week, so we’re that much closer to the weekend! Yay! 🙂 Kyle’s catching up on shows from earlier in the week, so Megan and I are here to give you our recommendations.

Jenny’s Choice #1

hotincleveland716smallLast week on Hot in Cleveland, the ladies learned that Elka had written a play. They decided to go see it, and there, they learned it was about them and when they moved in. The characters were all basically caricatures. All their “worst” features were exaggerated. “Melanie” was way too perky and wanted people to like her. “Victoria” was self-centered and all about telling people she was famous. Last but certainly not lease, “Joy” was actually played by a man. The ladies were really offended and embarrassed, so they left early. In the end, they went back because they wanted to see how the play ended. They were shocked when Elka had ended the play by thanking them for shaking up her world. It was cute.

On tonight’s episode, “Auction Heroes,” Joy decides to finally tell Mitch how she feels, but a handsome yet scheming dating coach gets in the way. Meanwhile, Victoria is surprisingly taken with a very Cleveland-y screenwriter. Tim Daly, Coby Bell, & Dan Lauria guest star.

Find out if Joy is able to tell Mitch her feelings tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/11/14

It’s been a couple of days filled with sickness in my house, but I’m hoping it’s over now. One thing is for sure: I’m going to spend tonight on my couch with a blanket watching some good TV. Let’s see what we’re recommending to keep us all happy.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2014smallWe’re a couple of weeks into this season of So You Think You Can Dance, and what a season it’s been so far. I loved having a dancer with the caliber of Fabrice Calmels on as a judge, because he brought a level of ballet expertise to the panel. However, as usual, Christina Applegate’s guest judge appearance was fabulous. She just lights up the screen, and the way she is moved by the dancers is phenomenal. Last week’s episode had me in tears again, so if that’s how this season continues to go, Kleenex is going to have a lot of sales world-wide.

On tonight’s episode, “Auditions #3,” the search for “America’s Favorite Dancer” heads to Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

To see how the dancers move us tonight, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The 100, Growing Up Fisher, Restaurant: Impossible, Graceland, Suits, and American Pickers.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/4/14

I feel SO nervous today. My 16yo starts his very first job today (Wednesday, not Tuesday, as I write this. 😉 ), working a full 8-hour shift from 10-7 at a store that’s kind of a cross between Best Buy & Radio Shack. He’s excited, but nervous, of course, but I’m downright terrified. *laugh* Thankfully, no matter how today goes, there’s a few good things on to watch tonight. Whether I’ll be celebrating with some laughs or crying into my blanket is up in the air. Check out what Megan & I are recommending, either way. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

jenniferfallssmallTV Land’s newest original comedy, Jennifer Falls, starts tonight, and I have high hopes for it, especially considering it stars Jaime Pressly & Jessica Walter, not to mention Ethan Suplee & Missi Pyle. I’ve loved Jaime & Ethan in everything, Jessica Walter is great, and Missi is really entertaining and quirky. The show revolves around Jennifer Doyle (Pressly), a former high-powered executive who has fallen and hit every bump on the way down to rock bottom. With her teenage daughter in tow, Jennifer moves back in with her mother (Walter) and takes a job in the bar owned by her meek brother (Suplee) and passive-aggressive sister-in-law (Nora Kirkpatrick) as a last resort. There, she reunites with her former best friend (Pyle), who turns out to be holding quite a grudge. But every cloud has a silver lining: there’s nowhere to go but up.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a single mother is forced to move in with her mother and work in her brother’s sports bar.

See if this new comedy’s for you tonight on TV Land at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Restaurant Stakeout, Hot in Cleveland, & Motive.
